Revelstoke Bear Aware and Parks Canada Create Two New Maps

Revelstoke Bear Aware has been working with Parks Canada to develop two new maps for the City of Revelstoke and surrounding area.

2009-2010 Bear Hazard Map

A new 2009-2010 Bear Hazard Map has been made, which includes reported bear sightings and associated bear attractants (garbage, fruit trees, livestock, birdfeeders, grain, pet food) as well as destroyed bears.  This map provides residents valuable information about bear activity in our community.  The previous Bear Hazard Map included data from 2005 to 2008.  Bear sightings that are reported to the Provincial RAPP Line (1-877-952-7277) as well as sightings reported directly to Revelstoke Bear Aware are included in the map.

2005-2010 Garbage Bear Map

The “Map of Reported Sightings of Bears in Garbage in the City of Revelstoke from 2005 thru 2010” was created to assist the Waste Collection Strategy committee in determining the location of reported bears in garbage only and identifies areas with high potential for human-bear conflict. The map will assist the City’s Waste Collection Strategy committee in determining areas to place Bear-Proof Garbage Cans.  Many of the areas highlighted on the map are in mobile home parks or in areas near “commonly used bear travel corridors.”
